Discrit< ("critical discourse" / "discourse critique") is a new Murmur initiative of donation-based knowledge-sharing and discussion. A kind of “free critical theory course,” the program uses various texts and cultural artifacts to conduct seminar-style discussions covering a range of theoretical concerns indispensable in deciphering and decoding our current moment.
The first season of Discrit examines the question of the body and the 21st century, a subject we dissect through the complimentary lenses of contemporary feminism, digital media, biotechnology, cyborg theory, related artistic and activist practices of the new millennium. The online text "Xenofeminism" provides a starting point for our exploration.
While the conversations are open-ended and casual sessions will be facilitated by Joey Molina, Chris Fernald, and guest speakers.
